Green light for progress on Parrot Island Park

Sep 28, 2017

Jinshan's Parrot Island, an ecological restoration project, passed expert assessment last week.

The examiners gave the green light after checking the construction site, management work reports and material from all units.

The 23-hectare wetlands site is located west of Jinshan City Beach and is expected to open to the public as Parrot Island Wetland Park.

The project cost 92.4 million yuan (US$14 million) to protect the natural wetland systems and set up park infrastructure.

Water circulation in the park will mimic the natural tide and move along the "beach," ensuring clean water for recreational swimming. Plants are being used in harmony with water courses to form a unique landscape.

Three functional areas at the park will provide leisure activities for tourists, purify water for the salt marsh, and settle birds.
